Part of the Science Center complex, the college opened a spacious library with materials devoted to astronomy, biochemistry, biology, botany, chemistry, geology, neuroscience, physics, and zoology. Also well represented are related subjects in agriculture, medicine, technology, science education, and history of science.

Students and faculty have access to more than 110,000 volumes—books and journals combined—including materials in storage. The library also has an iMac computer lab, one instructor workstation with ceiling projector, two small group study rooms, and 31 carrels.
